​Blues For Allah

This song is by Grateful Dead and appears on the album Blues For Allah (1975).

Arabian wind
The needle's eye is thin
The ships of state sail on mirage
And drown in sand

Out in no-man's land
Where Allah does command
What good is spilling blood?
It will not grow a thing

Taste eternity
The sword sings
Blues for Allah
In'sh'Allah

They lie where they fall
There's nothing more to say
The desert stars are bright tonight
Lets meet as friends

The Flower of Islam
The Fruit of Abraham
The thousand stories have come 'round
To one again

Arabian night
Our Gods pursue their fight
What fatal flowers of darkness
Spring from seeds of light

Bird of paradise fly
In white sky
Blues for Allah
In'sh'Allah

Let's see with our heart
These things our eyes have seen
And know the truth must still lie
Somewhere in between

Under eternity
Under eternity
Under eternity blue

Under eternity
Under eternity
Under eternity blue

Under eternity
Under eternity
Under eternity blue

Under eternity
Under eternity
Under eternity blue

Bird of paradise fly
In white sky
Blues for Allah
In'sh'Allah
